1.  We are not currently making any support statements for DSA w/ the

Unless it's a SHOULD+, no.

I asked at least once if anybody wanted it and there was no response.  I
think unless somebody actually says "yes I want it" we ought to leave it

This would finish the table entry out and also reference the 
discussion on why very large keys are not recommended.  It 
is possible 
that MAY NOT is not currently valid 2119 language.  In this case I 
would be happy with ether MAY or SHOULD NOT.  I would not be 
happy with MUST NOT.

MAY or SHOULD NOT it is. I would lean towards MAY.

I was leaning towards MAY, but maybe SHOULD NOT is better since the NOT
provides more information on which way we're leaning.  What do others think?
